This is an excerpt from a long note I wrote to my team some days ago –
“High performance is always ‘in spite of”, not “because of”. Individuals and teams that outperform, do so “in spite” of the challenges they face, not “because of” perfect circumstances.
Every day we have 2 choices –
1. A high performance mindset.
2. An explainable performance mindset.
A high performance mindset is about owning and driving results, in spite of circumstances.
An explainable performance mindset is about justifying why you cannot do or be any better, because of circumstances.
One is energising, the other is draining.
Here’s wishing you an energising day,”
